I used to work out without a fan or an AC. It was a time when I thought working out must be hard or it didn't count. So, I took steps to make it as uncomfortable and as difficult as possible. I told myself that I was weak and a sissy for wanting to be comfortable and for craving the easier path. Motivational videos, posters in the gym and movies like <em>Bhaag Milkha Bhaag</em>and <em>Rocky</em>, reaffirmed my faith that I was a weakling.
